A current Internet 150/150 promo offers upload and download speeds up to 150 Mbps, available for $42 per month for the first six months (then $80/month after)—only if you sign up for TELUS TV on a 2-year agreement, and you’re a new customer. If you sign up for Internet only, the promo $42 price is only for three months (thanks, fine print).

In August, TELUS upped its Internet 150 plan to include both upload and download up to 150 Mbps, to battle rival Shaw in Western Canada; the latter’s Internet 150 plan only offers upload speeds of up to 15 Mbps.

Last year, TELUS announced it would invest $1 billion in Edmonton over the next five to six years to roll out fibre-optic Internet, with ambitions to turn the city into Canada’s first “urban gigabit society,” according to CEO Darren Entwistle.
